Official Japanese Wrestling Discussion Thread
 
:penaldo3

New Thread for all general puroesu wrestling discussion. Don't be afraid to make threads on more specific topics just because there's a general sticky.

Does NJPW have a women's division? I haven't seen any advertised for the upcoming shows at all.

Ideal place for me to share this



Highlights from my trip to Tokyo, including

*Going to NJPW King of Pro-Wrestling @ Sumo Hall
*Visiting the Tokyo Dome
*Puro merch stalls
*What kind of puro related stuff is stocked in local shops
*Visiting Korakuen Hall (including all the cool wrestling related graffiti)
*Plus much more :)

They don't, and they haven't since I started watching regularly in 2011. It's unlikely to change given that their cards are already overpacked with tags fitting all their guys onto shows.

But if you're interested in some Joshi, STARDOM is freakin' rad.

I'd rather state right now Joshi ranking in quality in order: Ice Ribbon(very good, closest in consistency, fun, good pairings) > SEAdLINNNG(good, lacks at times, but there's enough names to help where it lacks apart from the last show) > Gatoh Move Pro Wrestling(good fun, good wrestling, and bonus points for getting great matches into a tiny room with only some matting and a wall, would pay money for them to make tape more often) > OZ Academy(some quality here and there but can get really really boring) > Tokyo Joshi Pro(good fun, fun characters that make up for the wrestling but wrestling does lack a bit, still) > Stardom(Potential to be the top but basically does everything to stump that to infuriating levels, even today. Some good wrestling but rookies lack real drive and speed and the gaijin matches are horrible. not good) > Sendai(Meiko herself is rather consistent and one of the most consistent in the circuit but her promotion is the complete opposite. not good)

No WAVE in here because I don't have WAVE Network or WAVE Network rips
